SGES Renovation 2020

    Sugar Grove Elementary School was built in 1996 and has never been renovated. CGCSC works to renovate each building sometime between years 20 - 25. For the 2019-2020 school year, the SGES enrollment was 696 K-5 students and 124 preschool students, with an ideal capacity of 774.

    To identify the needs that needed to be addressed at SGES, architect Lancer + Beebe conducted several meetings with all of the areas in the school and refined those requests. This project is divided into two phases and will address the following needs:

    • Improve Safety
      • Multiple added features to enhance safety/security building-wide
        • Addition of security barriers to restrict building circulation
        • Added video surveillance
        • Additional door monitoring
        • Additional one-way security screening
    • Improve Learning Spaces
      • Renovate classrooms to Center Grove’s learning space standards
        • New cabinetry, furniture
        • New paint, carpet, ceilings, lighting
        • Reclaim gym space for LGI 
    • Add Classroom/Group Space
      • Add classrooms for CGCSC's Developmental Preschool program
      • Add a gymnasium and re-purpose the old one as an LGI room
      • Expand the cafeteria into the existing LGI room

    The project cost will be no more than $15.9 million. It will be funded without impacting the current tax rate for White River Township.

    Work on the first phase of this project is expected to be completed by Summer 2023.
